New Jerseys Roger Coss started racing go-carts at age of 8 so at the age of 28 he is already a 20 veteran of racing. He started racing modifieds at Wall stadium in 2010, racing at Wall for 2 years before moving onto Mahoning Valley Speedway and the Race of Champions Tour.
He finished the 2015 season with a bang, winning the Mahoning Valley Speedway Octoberfast race and the big $6,000.00 first place money.
In 2016 with sponsorship money at a premium Roger has decided to pick races that make financial sense. Roger will still visit the Mahoning Valley Speedway from time to time and run a partial ROC schedule. But in 2016 he will also venture north and east and run all 5 Tri-Track Open Modified series races.
Today Roger Coss became the 23rd entry for the 2016 Northeast Race Cars Tri-Track Open Modified Series.
Asked why he entered the Tri-Track series Roger had a couple of answers, first money. The Tri-Track races pay good money in all the races. Drivers taking home $1,000.00 in a non qualifiers race was not lost on him. Second Roger is friends with the 2015 Tri-Track champion Matt Hirschman who has been pushing Roger to try the series.
His main sponsorship money comes from his father in laws company T.C. Facilities services in Stratford Ct. The fact the races are in New England will make it easier for his family and sponsors to attend the races.
Roger also told us he does have some track time at Waterford in a Legends car and at Seekonk’s Open Wheel Wednesday in a modified. Star and Monadnock are another story as he has never been to either but he looks forward to the challenge.
Monadnock Speedway Saturday June 11th will be his attempt at a Tri-Track race. He will join drivers like Hirschman, Pasteryak, Douglas, Pitkat, Alexander and many others trying to bring home the lions share of money.
